One-Place Studies: Tracing the history of a community - OFHS talk, 27 July 2015
On Monday, 27 July 2015, Kirsty Gray, a founder member of the Society for One-Place Studies, will talk to OFHS on “One-Place Studies: Tracing the history of a community“.
The people, the streets, the churches, the workplaces, the shops and the public buildings – there are so many aspects to explore in a village to uncover its fascinating history. The village detective, Kirsty Gray, documents the sources available to trace the history of villages, with particular reference to Tetcott and Luffincott in Devon, and how genealogical/historical records can be used to build up a comprehensive picture of a community from the 18th to the 21st century.
We meet at the Exeter Hall, Oxford Road, Kidlington, OX5 1AB, with the talk starting at 8:00pm. Doors open at 7:15pm, when there will be advisors offering computer and genealogy help, books for sale, and tea and coffee available.
Non-members are very welcome.
